The Prison Reform Trust and the Barrow Cadbury Trust have partnered with The Griffins Society to support two fellowships in 2020–21 focused on the treatment of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women in prison or more broadly across the criminal justice system.

The Griffins Society promotes effective practice in working with women and girls who are in prison or subject to criminal justice interventions in the community.

Griffins Research Fellows carry out their year-long research projects alongside their employment; they receive support from the Society and from our partners, the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge; the Society provides a modest research grant and travel bursary and we help with promoting Fellows’ findings at the end of the Fellowship.

Previous research experience or a degree is not necessary, although applicants must be capable of studying and writing at or near degree level.

The EXTENDED closing date for applications for 2019 is Noon, Friday 31 July 2020.
